Amendments to the law on fishing forced the fishermen to urgently pay attention to domestic shipbuilding capacity. Enterprises within the United Shipbuilding Corporation were able to conclude contracts for the construction of more than two dozen large and medium-tonnage vessels. Is there still a place for new orders at the plants, what are the chances of the Far Eastern sites to get involved in the investment mark program and how the shipyards will fulfill the localization requirements, the president of JSC "USC" Alexey Rakhmanov told the magazine "Fishnews - Fisheries News".
The Zvyozdochka Ship Repair Center (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) has supplied yet another batch of propellers for the Korean-built Arctic LNG carrier for the Yamal Project.
The Kronstadt Marine Plant (part of the USC) marks its 160th anniversary on March 4, 2018. Throughout its operation, the plant has repaired more than 10,000 ships and vessels, many of which contributed to the heroic history of the Russian Navy.
